Coffee Talk 02.04.18 + Go Eagles!

Greetings, friends! I’m going to keep this one brief because I want to get outside and run/walk before church, and I’m getting a late start this morning.

So who is hyped up for the Super Bowl? This is the first time in my life I have ever cared about this game, beyond the halftime show, and I honestly don’t care much about the halftime show either. As far as the commercials go, whatever… any that are good will get replayed a gazillion times on Facebook tomorrow.

But this year our Philadelphia Eagles are in the Super Bowl for the first time since 2004, and we haven’t won a national championship since it’s been called the Super Bowl, so we’re all pretty invested in this game, football fans or not.

To make it even more interesting (to me, anyway), my side of the family are Pats fans. My mom’s family hails from Maine, and they all regularly travel to Boston for Pats and Sox games. We’ve even been invited a couple of times, which should probably make me somewhat sympathetic to the New England teams… except I really can’t stand how they gloat… and cheat, AHEM.

Basically, it comes down to this: for the Eagles to lose this Super Bowl championship would stink, but to lose to the Pats is absolutely unacceptable. It. Cannot. Happen.

So yeah, the girl who hasn’t watched an entire football game through since my high school team went to the Virginia state championships back in the 1980s will be glued to the TV tonight.

We’re planning to go to a Super Bowl party in the neighborhood, and I’m bringing my favorite dip. I’ll see how long we last. I have severe cat allergies and can’t usually stay there too long, and I can see my husband and son wanting to come home and watch the game without distractions, but that will also depend on how close of a game it is.

Did I say I was keeping this post short? OOOPS.

Anyway… it’s been a busy weekend. I attended a funeral yesterday morning (never fun, but it was actually a blessing to me and hopefully to others in attendance) and then last night I went out with friends and saw Pitch Perfect 3. It was absolutely hysterical, albeit a tad raunchy, but even the raunch is done in a way that’s silly and not terribly offensive. If you’re a fan of the other two, you’ll love this one.

And somewhere in between all that we managed to shoot an outfit, plus I edited my pictures and wrote the blog post so I’m all ready for Monday! That feels good.

In other news, my back is feeling better. I’m hoping to head out in a bit and walk/run. Since I’m afraid the impact of running may have contributed to the situation, I took a break from that. I should have been walking regularly, but I only went out once or twice. It’s just been so dreadfully cold this week. Anyway, enough excuses. I’m headed back out this morning, but I plan to ease back into it with a walk/run sequence and see how it feels.

I hope you all have a lovely Sunday, and I’ll just leave you with this.
